This finite element analysis compared stress distribution on complete dentures and implant-retained overdentures with different attachment systems. Four models of edentulous mandible were constructed: group A (control), complete denture; group B, overdenture retained by 2 splinted implants with bar-clip system; group C, overdenture retained by 2 unsplinted(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the stress distribution induced by posterior functional loads on conventional complete dentures and implant-retained overdentures with different attachment systems using a two-dimentional Finite Element Analysis (FEA-2D). Three models representative of edentulous mandible were constructed on AutoCAD software; Group A(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to evaluate, using three-dimensional finite element analysis (3D FEA), the stress distribution in peri-implant bone tissue, implants, and prosthetic components of implant-supported single crowns with the use of the platform-switching concept. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three 3D finite element models were created to(More)
The bond strength of composite resins (CRs) to dentin is influenced by the interfacial microstructure of the hybrid layer (HL) and the resin tags (TAG). The contemporary self-etching primer adhesive systems overcame the inconvenient of the etch-and-rinse protocol. Studies, however, have demonstrated that HL thickness and TAG length vary according to the(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The fracture or chipping of ceramic veneers is a common problem for zirconia-based restorations. PURPOSE This study evaluated the stress distribution in the veneer of a maxillary central incisor restored with a complete crown using a zirconia core with a feldspathic ceramic veneer, simulating an incomplete bond between the veneer and(More)
UNLABELLED The presence of porosities at the dentin/adhesive interface has been observed with the use of new generation dentin bonding systems. These porosities tend to contradict the concept that etching and hybridization processes occur equally and simultaneously. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the micromechanical behavior of the hybrid(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of the length and diameter of the implant incorporated under the saddle of a distal-extension removable partial denture, acting as support. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six hemi-mandibular models were made with the presence of left inferior cuspid and first bicuspid, with the following differences:(More)
The aim of the present study was to conduct a critical literature review about the technique of computer-guided surgery in implantology to highlight the indications, purposes, immediate loading of implants and complications, protocol of fabrication, and functioning of virtual planning software. This literature review was based on OLDMEDLINE and MEDLINE(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the stress distribution in peri-implant bone by simulating the effect of an implant with microthreads and platform switching on angled abutments through tridimensional finite element analysis. The postulated hypothesis was that the presence of microthreads and platform switching would reduce the stress concentration in the cortical bone.(More)
PURPOSE : The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare 3 impression techniques for osseointegrated implant transfer procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS : (1) Group Splinted with Acrylic Resin (SAR), impression with square copings splinted with prefabricated autopolymerizing acrylic resin bar; (2) Group Splinted with Light-Curing Resin (SLR),(More)
